Now we create a cylinder with 12 sides in the Top View, and 5 Height Segments, and 3 cap-segments. It has a radius of 3, and a height of 13. And it's position isn't the middle of the table, it gets put anywhere of the table.

Let's now select these vertices in the edit mesh modifier:

Now we move the vertices up a bit, in the front window:

Now we choose the upper vertices, and scale them to 190:

Now we scale following rings of vertices (every ring sepparately).Looks a bit like a glass now, doesn't it?

5. Texturing

So, we have a relatively nice glass, and a simple table, but it sure still needs color:

Let's open the Material Editor (press the "M" key), and, aha, lots of spheres...

Let's first of all turn the Opacity to 40:

Now the texture is transparent 40%, let's copy the texture to the glass. Now it is transparent:

Hey,.. thanks for putting the time into putting this together. The fact that I have a newer version of 3ds max made somethings a lil difficult to go through, but your tutorial helped me get something started and it came out nice for me. Thanks again
